This is a collection of sermon notes taken down by hearers of McCheyne that were preached during a period of great revival in Scotland. With seven sermons, one each on the churches in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea, we are offered valuable insights into the distinctives of these early church situations. The reader is given some idea of the McCheyne's great burden to see men and women coming to know Christ for themselves. Dr Baxter wrote of McCheyne 'the chief thing about him was the unction from the Holy Spirit…at times he was awakening…at other times he was melting and moving as he dwelt on the great theme of redeeming love.' His epitaph describes him as a man who 'was honoured by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness into the path of life'.
